It is my pleasure to welcome you to Independence Community College – where we take great pride in our students and community. It’s an exciting time for ICC as we embrace opportunity and develop further as an institution. With a new strategic plan, the reaccreditation from the Higher Learning Commission and the college’s centennial celebration on the horizon, ICC is gaining momentum, and we look to the future ahead with great perseverance and expectation.
At ICC, we strive to provide excellent academic opportunity while promoting cultural enrichment and economic development that enriches our community. Not only is ICC especially affordable with the lowest tuition costs in the state, it also has the highest success rate among transfer students, premier fine arts faculty and facilities, expanded online courses and programs, exceptional entrepreneurial programs through Fab Lab ICC and an extensive grant-funded TRIO student support services department. ICC is also slated to excel in the realm of athletics with the arrival of new football, basketball and volleyball coaches this year.
As ICC’s interim president, I am dedicated to upholding the college’s values of integrity, excellence, responsiveness, diversity, enrichment and commitment. It is my hope that during your time at ICC, you too will embrace these values, enriching your education with meaningful experiences on your path to greatness. I wish you the very best on this journey. You’re already here; build on your momentum and make the most of it.
